Glitter smokey eyes are one of Spring 2020’s biggest trends and TBH, I’m gonna need everyone to hop on this bandwagon with me.

Listen, I am a die-hard smokey eye fan. I also am part glitter. Cosmopolitan has listed the glitter smokey eye as one of the top Spring 2020 makeup trends and BRB I’m getting ready for it NOW.  

Not only is this super gorgeous, super hot and super trendy, but it’s easier that it seems to pull off. The main items you need are a good eye primer, glittery eyeshadow and a good set of eyebrow brushes. You can also use loose glitter if you like, but I would definitely add a good glitter glue to your must-have list.

Here are some of our favorites to get you started:

  • Stageline Ultra Light Glitter Liner: Available in four beautiful shades (Black, Pink, Deep Gold and Malibu Gold), this would be a great way to line the upper and lower lid of your eyes without having to go through all of the other steps (except maybe the primer; I wouldn’t skip on that). I love pink and Malibu gold, personally. Most of the looks have utilized silver and darker gunmetals for smokey eyes, but you can use any color.
  • MUA Glitter Glue: This water-based adhesive is a staple and it should be in everyone’s kit. Depending on how much glitter you go through per month, you might want to put two in your cart.
  • Rude You Glit Up My Life Glitter: This loose glitter comes in a host of colors, any of which would be good to do a glitter smokey eye. You can pair these colors with any matte palette, such as the Makeup Revolution X Alexis Stone The Instinct Palette and create a tropical bright glitter smokey eye look.
  • Makeup Revolution Precious Stone Shadow Palettes: These are available in Amethyst, Diamond, Emerald, Rose Quartz and Ruby. These are beautiful glitter palettes (and are also great dupes for Huda’s Gem Obsessions Palettes) and would create gorgeous glitter smokey eyes.
